Inside is getting a mysterious $375 collector’s edition, and it has ties to sex dolls

Speculation abound

Mystery boxes are always a gamble. Mystery boxes that cost $375 are an expensive gamble. That’s a risk you’ll have to take if you want the most expensive version of Inside.

Playdead and iam8bit have teamed up for a new collector’s edition of Inside that’s prohibitively expensive. The reason it costs so much is because this is a ménage à trois of collaborators, as sex doll manufacturer RealDoll is also involved. We just don’t know how involved.

Everyone’s being extremely coy about what this $375 package actually contains (apart from a physical copy Inside on PS4, and Steam codes for both Inside and Limbo). The fun guess is that it’s something that you could hypothetically bang; the reasonable guess is that RealDoll, a company experienced in making all sorts of silicone molds, is creating a replica of something that happens at the end of the game.

But, we won’t actually know until it’s too late to buy one. Pre-orders go on sale on March 8 on iam8bit, and they run through June 8. After that, there’s no more purchasing this collector’s edition — at least without going through a secondhand seller. Then, it’ll ship sometime early next year. That’s a year-long tease for a mystery box. The waiting is the hardest part. The $375 price tag is the hardest part.
